Wedding is over.....

The wedding is done. I went to take pics and found my card was full so we will have to wait for Dianns pics.
It went off well, the weather in Florida was lovely, no rain and it cooled down the weekend before the wedding.

Sara had gotten real sunflowers and gerbera daisies for the bouquets and they turned out well. It was hairy with the thick stems of the sunflowers and the delicate stems of the gerberas but it worked. Just what she wanted. Lots of family turned up.

The shower ended up with lots of food, drink, balloons and presents. We had some fun games which Ashley emceed. I think Sara was happy. Joann worked very hard to make it nice for her. This is a time when lots of aunties come in very handy. Sometimes many opinions make it crazy but I am always grateful when the girls get together. One was missing due to another wedding commitment in California. We missed her.

The day after the wedding I went with Alison, Michael and Bailey to Blue Springs State Park. Wow has it changed since we started going there 20 years ago. We saw some huge fish and a few manatees. We met Billy, Di and Ashley there. Then we headed to Daytona to the boardwalk, sorry it was closed. All in all a great day. Later that day I took Melissa, Michael & the kids, Sam and JJ to Beef O'Bradys for dinner. (kids eat free on Tuesday) and we had a good chat.
Wednesday back to Massachusetts on Amtrak. (More about the Amtrak trip later)
